Honeymoon - The First Compromise?

Every newly married couple has their own idea of what the perfect honeymoon consists of. The most common honeymoon requirement is to be able to be alone together somewhere away from their regular lives. Of course, the honeymoon is seen as the start to wedded bliss and hopefully not a complete disaster.

The main key to the success of any honeymoon is to choose a location where both the bride and groom want to go. This may involve some compromise, especially if one is a sun worshipper and the other likes adventure. It wouldn't bode well for the marriage if you can't agree on the honeymoon destination!

Decide where it is you want to travel to and then begin to look at the type of accommodation you would like for your honeymoon. Obviously, the cost of the honeymoon depends on who is paying for it. If the parents of one of the couple are footing the bill then you may well be able to have more of a fairytale honeymoon than if you are trying to scrape together the money yourself.

One tip is that the honeymoon does not have to be taken directly after the wedding ceremony. It is now becoming common for people to get married and then save up for a honeymoon at a later date.

Finally, remember that, if all else fails on the first honeymoon you can always take a second!
